Nominal Shift Machining

US Patent:
6453211, Sep 17, 2002
Filed:
Mar 2, 2000
Appl. No.:
09/517020
Inventors:
David E. Ehling - Morrow OH
Michael J. Brunck - Cincinnati OH
Assignee:
General Electric Company - Schenectady NY
International Classification:
G06F 1500
US Classification:
700193, 700195, 700192
Abstract:
The nominal configuration of a workpiece is stored in a multiaxis numerically controlled machine. The workpiece is probed in the machine to determine an offset from the nominal configuration. The workpiece is then shifted by the offset to correspond with the nominal configuration. The workpiece is then machined according to the nominal configuration.

Device For Defining A Designated Flow Path Through A Dovetail Slot In A Gas Turbine Engine Disk

US Patent:
6736706, May 18, 2004
Filed:
Dec 3, 2002
Appl. No.:
10/308409
Inventors:
Paul Yin-Pu Pan - Cincinnati OH

Michael Jay Brunck - Cincinnati OH
Assignee:
General Electric Company - Schenectady NY
International Classification:
B24C 700
US Classification:
451 99, 451 36
Abstract:
A device for defining a designated flow path through a dovetail slot in a gas turbine engine disk, wherein a longitudinal axis extends through the dovetail slot. The device includes a first portion having a bottom section contoured to form the flow path in conjunction with a surface of a bottom portion of the dovetail slot and a second portion shaped to be removably retained in a pressure surface portion of the dovetail slot.

Method And Apparatus For Removing A Predetermined Amount Of Material From A Bottom Portion Of A Dovetail Slot In Gas Turbine Engine Disk

US Patent:
6780089, Aug 24, 2004
Filed:
Dec 3, 2002
Appl. No.:
10/308392
Inventors:
Paul Yin-Pu Pan - Cincinnati OH
Gerald Roger Geverdt - Cincinnati OH
Michael Jay Brunck - Cincinnati OH
Assignee:
General Electric Company - Schenectady NY
International Classification:
B24C 700
US Classification:
451 36, 451 99, 451113
Abstract:
A system and method of removing a predetermined amount of material from a bottom portion of a dovetail slot in a gas turbine engine disk, including the steps of configuring a designated flow path through the dovetail slot and providing a flow of abrasive media through the flow path a designated number of cycles so that a substantially uniform amount of material is removed from the dovetail slot bottom portion. The method also includes the step of sealing a pressure surface of the dovetail slot to prevent the abrasive media from flowing thereagainst.

Method Of Cutting A Hole In A Composite Material Workpiece

US Patent:
6902360, Jun 7, 2005
Filed:
Feb 8, 2002
Appl. No.:
10/071596
Inventors:
Roy Dean Meece - New Trenton IN, US
Jeffrey Kevin Back - Loveland OH, US
Roger John Tuchfarber - Deer Park OH, US
Gerald Roger Geverdt - Cincinnati OH, US
Michael Jay Brunck - Cincinnati OH, US
Assignee:
General Electric Company - Schenectady NY
International Classification:
B23C001/00
US Classification:
409132, 409 65, 409191, 409143, 409200, 269 7
Abstract:
A hole of a hole size is cut in a composite material workpiece by selecting a milling cutter having an effective cutter size less than the hole size, mounting the composite material workpiece in operable relation to the milling cutter, rotating the milling cutter about an axis of rotation, and advancing the milling cutter longitudinally into the composite material workpiece parallel to the axis of rotation at a rate of longitudinal advance, while laterally moving the milling cutter perpendicular to the axis of rotation to interpolate the hole. The rate of longitudinal advance is controlled such that the hole remains substantially a flat-bottomed hole as it is cut. The composite material workpiece is desirably affixed to a backing fixture with an adhesive material during the cutting of the hole.

Method And Apparatus For Process Control Of Burnishing

US Patent:
7185521, Mar 6, 2007
Filed:
May 13, 2005
Appl. No.:
11/128565
Inventors:
Dale Robert Lombardo - Blue Ash OH, US
Alberto Luna - Cincinnati OH, US
Michael J. Brunck - Cincinnati OH, US
Assignee:
General Electric Company - Schenectady NY
International Classification:
B21D 17/04
B21B 37/00
US Classification:
72 75, 72 71, 72 74, 72293, 29 9001
Abstract:
An apparatus for process control of a burnishing process comprising a body having a first end and a second end, at least one process control coupon, and structure for attaching the process control coupon to the body. At least one edge of the process control coupon is clamped along the entire length thereof during burnishing. A method of process control for burnishing of components comprising selecting at least one process control coupon, selecting an apparatus for holding the process control coupon(s), attaching the process control coupon(s) to the apparatus, selecting a region on the surface of the process control coupon(s) for burnishing, burnishing a patch on the selected region using a burnishing process, and, measuring at least one physical parameter at a selected location of the process control coupon(s) after burnishing.

US Patent:
8051565, Nov 8, 2011
Filed:
Dec 30, 2006
Appl. No.:
11/618746
Inventors:
Alberto Luna - Greenville SC, US
Joshua Leigh Miller - West Chester OH, US
William Terence Dingwell - Lebanon OH, US
Michael Jay Brunck - Cincinnati OH, US
William Lee Imhoff - Hamilton OH, US
Paul Moncelle - Cincinnati OH, US
Dale Robert Lombardo - Blue Ash OH, US

Abstract:
A method of reducing crack propagation in an airfoil includes: providing an airfoil having a root spaced apart from a tip, spaced-apart leading and trailing edges, a suction side extending from the leading edge to the trailing edge, and an opposed pressure side extending from the leading edge and the trailing edge, supporting the airfoil against bending loads; and burnishing the airfoil using a burnishing element, so as to create at least one burnished section of residual compressive stress, the at least one burnished section being located adjacent the leading edge and spaced from the leading edge by an offset distance selected so as to avoid deformation of the leading edge.

Apparatus For Laser Twist Weld Of Compressor Blisks Airfoils

US Patent:
63265850, Dec 4, 2001
Filed:
Jul 13, 1999
Appl. No.:
9/353487
Inventors:
Stephen Aleshin - Muskegon MI
Michael J. Brunck - Cincinnati OH
Christopher L. English - Mason OH
Assignee:
General Electric Company - Cincinnati OH
International Classification:
B23K 2600
US Classification:
21912163
Abstract:
Apparatus for performing laser weld repair of complex titanium-base material parts for gas turbine engines. The complex arts, typically compressor blisk airfoil assemblies are enclosed in a local dry box and purged in an inert gas atmosphere. Laser weld repairs are accomplished within this dry box by using a coaxial nozzle and a mixture of helium and argon. The welding is accomplished by maintaining a proper standoff between the weld nozzle and the weld. The welding is monitored and controlled from a remote location using in a video camera system. Copper shielding is provided within the dry box to protect areas adjacent to the weld area from overheating and weld spatter.
